A great level 3 book that introduces some french words-(with definitions and how to pronounce) Also a nice way to show that everyone is different and likes different activities and that not everyone gets along!

I thought this book was inappropriate for young children. The story line has potential if it had stuck to 'how to deal with a bully', but the stereo-typing of the bully being the fat girl was rude and irresponsible. There are far to many quality children's books for this book to enter children's minds.
